the Hummingbirds fly in a Figure 8 formation in their vineyards.
The founders of Burrowing Owl Winery in Oliver are behind the new venture of Calliope Wines.
Calliope in Greek means ‘beautiful Voice’. Calliope Amagolapitsa would be happy that they’ve chosen her name for the wine. They market the wine for casual get togethers. Pitsa’s all for that!
Not a wine your’e going to put down for a few years – it’s meant to be enjoyed now. So we are.
Each year the blend is a bit different – this year’s varietal is Gewürztraminer and Viognier. It’s crisp with lovely fruit flavours and a really fresh finish.
Keeping it light, we served shrimp and scallops in a tomato/onion broth with freshly baked bread and an orange salad.
It would also go well with something like homemade pizza or chicken cordon bleu. If it’s still available in the summer, it would be great to take on a picnic or to enjoy on the deck.
This is a marvellous start to Mystery Case #4
